Blood Running Down the Stairs: Cascade (Japanese: 血の流血階段カスケード) is the 62nd episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.



As 22 July 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE) ends, the turmoil in Heinessen continues to expand. Yang Wen-li debates with João Rebelo on the state of the Free Planets Alliance. Rebelo reluctantly agrees with Yang's plan to kidnap Helmut Lennenkampf and use him as a hostage to secure a passage of freedom for Yang and the subordinates who had rescued him. The Rosen Ritter infiltrates the Imperial consulate, kidnapping Lennenkampf and causing massive casualties on the Imperial side. While in captivity Lennenkampf hangs himself, too ashamed to live. Frederica Greenhill Yang applies make-up on Lennenkampf's corpse to give the impression that he is still alive. Alex Cazerne resigns from his post in the Alliance military and join up with Yang's group with his family.


Memorable quotes

"You've long whispered in my ear, telling me that I should seize power with my hands. If I do seize power, and my character changes, then what?"
"If you did change, then you'd be just like any other man. History would be repeating itself. And there'll be another man in the annals of history who'll make life hard for history students."

Yang Wen-li and Walter von Schönkopf

"What interesting logic! A country can sell out its citizens, but the reverse is not allowed."

Walter von Schönkopf, to João Rebelo
